Former Arsenal Boss Joe Montemurro Named Lyon Manager in Multi-Year Deal

In a move that is sure to excite football enthusiasts, former Arsenal boss Joe Montemurro has been appointed as the new manager of Olympique Lyonnais, one of the powerhouses of women’s football. The 54-year-old Australian has signed a contract with the French club that will keep him at the helm until 2026.

Playing against this team has always represented the pinnacle of football for me. It has always brought me joy and inspiration.”

As the countdown to the UEFA Euro 2024, FIFA World Cup, and Women’s World Cup continues, football fans eagerly await to see how Montemurro’s leadership and tactical acumen will impact Lyon’s performance in the upcoming Champions League, Premier League, EFL Cup, EFL Championship, EFL One, EFL Two, and FA Cup competitions.
